The SecondLook™ Histology Series


icon_histology

Description:

The SecondLookTM Histology mobile application for the iPad, the iPhone and Android devices is a study aid that provides a series of histology slides for users to self-test their level of knowledge and ability to recognize histological structures. The slides in the Michigan Histology SecondLookTM application feature high quality images from the University of Michigan Medical School's Histology and Virtual Microscopy collection (http://histology.sites.uofmhosting.net). One SecondLookTM Histology application is free to download and comes with one slide deck (Connective Tissue). Additional slide decks can be purchased either as six separate organ-system bundle apps (Basic Tissues; Nervous System and Sensory Organs; Cardiovascular and Lymphatic System; Musculoskeletal System; Gastrointestinal Tract; Urinary, Endocrine and Reproductive Systems) or as a complete app covering all major human tissues and organs. By taking a "Second Look" at these slides, users are able to review, self-evaluate, and test their knowledge of histology in order to be better prepared for examinations.
